Written and Directed by Tali Shalom Ezer
PRINCESS is the story of Adar, a bright 12-year-old girl, who must navigate a path for herself amidst the openly lustful relationship between her liberal workaholic mother, Alma and Michael, her young stay-at-home stepfather. It is a dark coming of age story, which shifts continually between reality and fantasy, exploring the sexual dynamics in the family home.
